In Olympic Shadow, Nightline Beats Letterman

By SteveK 

For the sixth week in a row, ABC’s Nightline topped the Late Show with David Letterman in the A25-54 demo. Competing with the two programs was the Olympics, which contributed to both shows dropping in Total Viewers and the demo week-to-week.

Also, the Late Show was in repeats last week.

Besides the sixth week in a row in second place, Nightline has 16 victories over Letterman in the demo this season.
